I find it hilarious that white people are telling us to go back to our countries when they stole this land from Native Americans.
Go back to Europe you scum and while you’re there read a history book. -G
I can’t stand when white people say this, especially when it’s targeted at black Americans who are the descendants of slaves. We don’t know what country our ancestors were from. They took that from us.
Twitter reacts to the Michael Dunn sentence today. Dunn was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
EXHIBITION: New Work by Lakin Ogunbanwo, Oct 8 - Nov 15, 2014
WHATIFTHEWORLD introduces its first exhibition with Lakin Ogunbanwo. Working at the confluence of fashion photography and classical portraiture, young Nigerian photographer Lakin Ogunbanwo creates enigmatic portraits with an erotic and subversive undertone. His subjects exist defiantly in the frame often masked by shadow, drapery and foliage. His use of vibrant flat colour and bold compositions form a more minimalist homage to the african studio photography popular in the 1960s and 70’s.
Pop. Fashion. Vogue. Ogunbanwo’s camera looks with the gaze of one curious of the language of desire. His images celebrate the sculptural nature of the body. The texture of a scar, hair or clothing are agents to draw our awareness to the body as a form, sculpted by light and muscle and clothing. The lustre of skin is enhanced through oiling and juxtaposes the naked with the clothed. Ogunbanwo’s figures are sculpted by light and framed as objects by the camera reminiscent of Robert Mapplethorp or Man Ray. Rather than colour, it is light that defines Ogunbanwo’s images.

Since you hate white people so much, just go back to your country.
